This is the 15th annual Dragon Boat Festival in Peterborough—an incredible milestone of ensuring the best possible breast cancer diagnosis and treatment is available right here in our community.
Peterborough will be hosting their 12th Annual Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday, June 9th. The event is a way of offering awareness and support, and serves as a fundraiser for the Breast Assessment Centre at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre. Practices have already started for the teams out on Little Lake who all get one 1 hour practice to get ready for the big day!
